Wilson leads Seattle to 41-14 win

Russell Wilson's first appearance at home since hoisting the Lombardi Trophy looked very similar to Seattle's Super Bowl domination, even in a limited performance.

Wilson threw for 121 yards and ran for two touchdowns, leading Seattle to scores on all four of his possessions as the Seahawks beat the San Diego Chargers 41-14 on Friday night.

"I definitely believe we can be that explosive," Wilson said. "It starts first of all with the offensive line and how well they're doing ... but then you think about our receivers and we have so many talented receivers."

Wilson did a little of everything. He was pressured on the first snap of the game and avoided it to complete a pass. He scrambled when the pressure created clear running lanes. He threw sharp passes to open receivers and he operated Seattle's offense with an efficiency missing in its preseason opener at Denver.

Wilson completed 11 of 13 passes, and connected on his first eight attempts. He ran for another 31 yards as Seattle finished the first half with 260 yards of offense, 255 of those with Wilson at quarterback.

Wilson was the first act. Terrelle Pryor and B.J. Daniels added their own chapters on a night Seattle's quarterbacks combined for four touchdowns rushing.

Pryor got an extended look in the competition to back up Wilson and showed why Seattle is so enticed. Pryor was 1 of 4 passing, but ran away from San Diego's defense on a 44-yard TD run in the fourth quarter.

Daniels added a 6-yard TD run.

Marshawn Lynch made his preseason debut for all of two plays before giving way to backups Robert Turbin and Christine Michael. Lynch held out of the first week of training camp and did not touch the ball in his two snaps. Seattle did get some of its other stars involved, including Percy Harvin, who had four receptions for 31 yards after catching five passes all of last season.

Turbin finished with 81 yards on 12 carries. He showed open-field speed cutting back on the defense and racing for 47 yards on one carry, and displayed power bulling in for a 1-yard touchdown.
